Question about 2001 BMW Z3

1 Answer

I got in a wreck, dont know what parts i need

I basically need everything from the engine pulleys forward (and the crossed bars under the front suspension) but i dont know what those parts are called, so its hard to search for them ! i dont want to run the car, and i dont want to pay to have it towed somewhere to have a mechanic run an estimate when i dont have money to fix it yet. so im trying to just buy the parts one by one and have them installed later. i understand that because you cant see the car yourself its hard to say what all i really need, but every little piece of info helps. thanks!

Try this website: This lets you put in the details of your car and then lets you access a parts list with exploded diagrams. Below is a list of all the parts in the diagram with their BMW approved name and BMW part number. It also gives the price or the parts in USD. My local BMW dealer gave me the website as it seems to have the same information as he uses. I have found it very useful.

How do you check the timing belt for a Lincoln navigator?

It is a big process
  • Open the hood. Disconnect the negative (black) battery cable.

  • 2

    Inspect the fan shroud for the accessory belt routing diagram. If the diagram is missing or illegible, use a pen and paper to draw your own diagram before removing the belt. The new belt must be routed around the pulleys exactly as the old one was.

  • Locate the spring loaded belt tensioner on the front of the engine. There is a small pulley attached to the bottom of the tensioner arm.

  • 4

    Slide the square end of the breaker bar into the square hole in front of the tensioner pulley. Rotate the breaker bar counterclockwise and the entire tensioner will move enough to relieve the tension from the belt. Pull the belt out from under the pulley and slowly let the breaker bar retract.

  • 5

    Remove the accessory belt from each pulley with your hands. Rotate one of the fan blades to the top side of the engine with your hand and pull the belt around it. Repeat this process until the belt is around all of the fan blades. Pull the belt out of the engine compartment.

  • 6

    Route the new belt carefully around each fan blade. Wrap the belt around the crankshaft pulley to begin the belt routing process. Refer back to the belt routing diagram instructions to properly route the new belt around the accessory pulleys.

  • 7

    Turn the tensioner counterclockwise again with the breaker bar. Position the new belt evenly under the tensioner pulley. Allow the tensioner pulley to tighten against the belt. Pull the breaker bar out of the tensioner.

  • 8

    Reconnect the negative battery cable.

  • 9

    Start the engine for five to ten seconds to seat the new belt. Turn the engine off. Visually check that the belt is properly seated around all pulleys.

    Need serpentine belt routing diagram for 1994 Dodge grand caravan

    Looking at the engine from front (right side of the Van): Stating at the Top, Going Left to Right and Clockwise:
    Over the Alternator
    To under the Idle Pulley,
    To Over the AC Compressor.
    To the Left Side of the Water Pump.
    To the Right side and Under the Crankshaft Pulley
    To the Right side and Over and Down the Tensioner
    To Under the Power Steering Pump
    And Back up-to the Left side of the Alternator.
    Advise when puting it on:
    Put the Belt around everything else accept for the Alternator. After it is around all the rest of the Pulleys - Pull the belt up - tight from the Power steering Pump and the Idle Pulley to form a loop, holding the Belt close to the Altenator Pulley.
    Using the 15mm wrench or belt tensioner bar - rotate the Tensioner Pulley towards the front of the Van and then place the belt over the Alternator.
    Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

    I need to put a new belt so the water pump can work. do i have to take everything apart? how you pull out the pulley so you can put a new one? cadillac el dorado 1995

    Sounds like you have the Northstar engine yes?...if won't need to dismantle anything other than the water pump belt cover. You can then put the new belt on by levering the small belt tensioner.
    Pulley's do not need to be removed, simply position the belt around the three pulley's.

    Knocking coming from under the extended cab from

    There called torsion bar mount bushings, and will cost about $34.00 for both of them. Parts Source.

    Jack up RH side of truck, crawl under LH side
    • 1 Remove nut from torsion bar mount stud that secures the mount to the cross-member. You'll have to feel for it, you won't be able to see it from below.
    • 2 Remove bottom two bolts. Easy, they're in plain view from below. Now the mount is free.
    • 3 Push up on cross member, remove old mount.
    • 4 Insert new mount - push up on cross member, slip mount in between frame and cross member. Drop hole in cross member over the stud.
    • 5 Loose assemble nut and two bolts. Torque down once other side is done.
    Now over to the passenger side
    • 6 Jack up driver side of truck
    • 7 Repeat steps 1 and 2
    • 8 To get the mount out, try pushing up on the cross member, just like the driver side. If it comes out, great. I couldn't get the cross member up high enough on mine. I used a big screwdriver and ripped it out by separating the rubber from the metal plate. It came out in pieces.
    • 9 Install new mount. If you didn't have trouble getting the old one out, you probably won't have a problem getting the new one in. As I said, I did. I couldn't raise the cross member high enough to slip it in. Solution: whack 3/8" off the stud. You'll still have plenty left for the nut.
    • 10 Reinstall nut & bolts, torque down.
    • 11 Remove jack, Torque down drives side.
    Good luck. The TRW's are one-piece urethane, (I think) and came with a lifetime guarantee. They'll probably outlast the vehicle.

    What is the correct name of the part that needs to be replaced?

    Chilton's car manual calls a plate below the engine a 'cradle plate'. It ties together suspension components, but they don't show anything forward of that point. A wrecking yard should be able to find one for you. Is the old one cracked or broken? It could probably be welded properly if removed.

    99 Beetle Serpentine belt diagram

    The serpentine belt on my 2001 Beetle loops around the outside of the large pulley closest to the firewall, at the bottom, then goes around the outside of the forward lower pulley, then crosses to the inside of the one right above the forward lower pulley, then loops over the outside of the alternator pulley at the top front side, then goes inside under the tensioner pulley, and back down to the outside of the big rear pulley.

    I hope that description makes sense. A picture would work a lot better, but I don't have an easy way to post it. Also, I know you asked about the '99 Beetle, but I assume its routing is the same as the 2001 (which is the one I have).
